to control more of america through politicians. that is a fundamentally different world. we believe you ought to develop american energy and american technology so america's able to keep the money at home, both for national security and for economic growth. they believe you ought to raise taxes massively on american energy, cripple the american economy, and make sure that you're dependent forever on countries like venezuela and saudi arabia, a fundamentally different model. we believe you ought to develop green technology. i wrote a book called "contract with europe," describing a green conservatism, but we also recognize there are 240 million vehicles in the current fleet that are going to require current technology fuels for the next generation. they believe he we ought to make a magic switch overnight to technology that is not -- that does not yet exist, at a price that we can't imagine using things we don't know about, from companies that have not yet been formed. fundamentally different model. [laughter] [applause] >> we believe the world is dangerous, our borders ought to be controlled,
the work that the young america's foundation does is for you guys on campus, but even more importantly for your liberal compatriots on campus. you know, these are the guys and girls who have been thoroughly indoctrinated by their leftist professors or their teachers in high school that by the time they get the college they are committed liberals but if they are not they have to go through that weeklong freshman indoctrination program, you know what i'm talking about were they all teach a sort of atrocious things. don't fall for it, okay? so that is why we are dean until doing here is so incredibly important. did you know that last year a rock obama was on 100 college campuses? over 100 college campuses. do you think that the left recognizes the importance of getting young people on their side? i think 100 campuses means they understand the importance of getting the left on their side. his plan to socialized medicine and pretty much every private sector of our economy, he knows in order for that plan to succeed he has to get buy-in from you guys. for it to succeed to the law and. he jus
as the largest townhall so far on health care. this one is called "america's health care townhall." and you can see the folks there. let's walk around and show you some of the folks. 1,000 people here. people streaming in and out. the crowd was a little larger earlier. up on the stage. dick armey, former house of representatives majority leader and a conservative radio talk show host. doctors, other people up on the stage there talking about -- their concerns about the plan. not many specifics about what they're concerned about. mostly talking what they disagree with. who they don't want involved in the plan. mostly they don't want involved in the plan, the president, speaker of the house and also the majority leader. but there are folks we have been seeing signs of, about, no obama care. no socialized medicine. socialized medicine is killing people. read the bill. and there are some crazy signs. but that is very, have to say, only a very small percentage of the people who have signs that may be sort of deemed as something you wouldn't want shown on television or you wouldn't want said about an
of different plans is what we want to preserve for america. >> schieffer: all right, so senator conrad, you have been one of those talking about the so-called co-op plan, and that would be you would have a cooperative that would provide this insurance to people instead of the public option, but i want to just go back. you say the public option just simply can't pass. you still believe that? you think the president should just drop that and get on to something else? >> i would say this. it is very clear that in the united states senate, the public option does not have the votes. if we have to get to 60 votes, you cannot get there with public option. that's why i was asked to come up with an alternative, and the alternative i came up with was this cooperative approach that, as senator grassley correctly describes is not government run or government controlled, it's controlled by its membership but it does provide not-for-profit competition to insurance companies, so it has appeal on both sides. it's the only proposal that has bipartisan support and if we're going to get 60 votes we're going t
. there you go. >> i cannot believe that we have a president of the united states of america and grand junction, colorado. [ applause ] >> we're so proud of you. >> thank you. >> my name is maria wells, and i live on the slope in gross, colorado and i'm a naturalized citizen and i'm proud to be an american. [ applause ] >> as a child i had polio and i have had serious surgeries, 52 of them to correct my poor construction bonds. between hear, deborah, montrose and the mayo clinic in phoenix, arizona. i have been blessed with good insurance, generally excellent doctors and care, however, my major concern is cost even with good -- even with good insurance , our cost is then high , practically and i have been gone out of the network, why should our doctors treatment choice be limited by a geographic area or the state? what kind of competition is this, mr. president? thank you. >> all right. this raises an important question, because it goes to the overall debate that's taking place out there right now. when we talk about reform, you hear some opponents of reform sang that somehow we are tr

of the administration to misspeak recently. secretary of state hillary clinton in nigeria saying democracy in america is still evolving. she also made a surprising comment about the 2000 presidential election in this country while on foreign soil. >> our democracy is still evolving. we had all kinds of problems in some of our past elections, as you might remember. in 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for president was the governor of the state. so we have our problems, too. >> a state department spokesman tonight told us, quote, the secretary's remarks stand on their own. >>> as we reported to you earlier, the president's poll numbers continue to fall. a new gallup poll shows the president's job ap vl pro has fallen to 53%. the latest rasmussen puts it even lower, 48%. one of those reasons for the declining poll numbers is rising concern about the president's agenda which is meeting strong resistance. a leading republican senator, senator charles grassley today reported people are scared by the president's health care plan and other policies.
in america but if you look at polls that have been released lately, that is so insignificant. i know global warming is something celebrities and people on the left are just absolutely wrapped up in. it's the most important thing in the world to a lot of these people. you look at the polls of americans. that is so low on the list, it's in single digits, i believe. i'm sure somebody from media matters will say -- i've seen polls where americans who care about the environment, global warming is on the bottom of that list and yet they jammed this bill through congress and, again, it just distracts americans from what you say are the top priorities. jobs, jobs, and jobs. >> most normal people in this country when you mention cap and trade to them they'll ask you a question like, well, are we going to get a pitcher in return? they don't know what cap and trade is. >> by the way, mike, i'm not even weighing in on the global warming debate or the health care debate now. i'm simply talking about overloading the circuits with ideological items that middle america just doesn't give a damn about for th
silence on health care in america from in crowd? the four most influential christian leaders in this country i think need to step up and speak up. i'm talking about rick warren, joel osteen, frankly graham, and mr. dobson. mr. dobson, you're in retirement, you can come out of retimplt for this one. people will listen to you. these christians leaders need to get engaged and support a christian president on the public option in providing health care for all americans. isn't it the christian thing to do? their silence is deafening. when jesus walked the face of the earth, he was feeding the hungry, clothing the poor and healing the sick. he didn't ask anybody for their health insurance card, and he didn't heal anybody for profit. yet we hear nothing from the christian leadership in this country on health care reform and the moral obligation we face as a nation to address this issue. this piece of audio from the arlen specter town hall meeting really struck me earlier this week. >> one day god's going to stand before you, and he's going to judge you, and the rest of your damn cro
, middle america rose up against that amnesty against, then cheered sarah palin when she was first appointed. there's a new militancy out there, joe, in the gop. >> i've got to say, mike barnicle, democrats always do this. democrats always will vote ideologically. if you look at barack obama voting against john roberts. clearly qualified to be supreme court justice. we republicans always took pride in the fact that we would grill a democratic nominee but then we would go ahead and, you know, we believed in advise and consent. if that's who the president wanted and they didn't fall short of the mark, we didn't look at ideology. that changed yesterday. and i'm just going to say, just cynically, politically i think republicans could have picked a nominee that wasn't the first hispanic woman to show what pat buchanan calls the new militancy. >> yesterday's vote may be a forerunner, a harbinger of the vote on straight ideological party lines. >> as you might expect president obama led the praise for soug sotomay sotomayor. >> justice, equality, and opportunity are the very ideals that h
of the national security interests of america right now? >> i would feel more comfortable talking about this but i have more information on their contract. yes, sir. >> the president made a comment about that -- that the republican leadership made the decision -- [laughter] [inaudible] he didn't have a cross word either. i thought he -- >> that's what happens when he stuck with a cross word [laughter] >> it's an easy one to date. [laughter] >> it is thursday, a little tougher puzzle. >> it's august. >> the president said the republican leadership made the decision to oppose him. is this his political analysis or is this what he -- i mean is this like he knows this as a fact? >> i think it's -- i think it is a deducing from comments that he's read -- i think if you read comments in today's paper you might come to that conclusion. >> said he doesn't feel like the republican leadership is stealing from -- he doesn't fairly any more? >> i think there is a difference between some members of the republican party. i did you have seen members the president of dimensions that are -- >> he singled out repub
says this is leroy carhart who plans to take tiller's place as the number one abortionist in america. with your help we can stop him. now that george tiller's mill is closed forever, leroy carhart plans to take his place, open a new butchering mill he already operates in nebraska. this is where operation rescue comes in. as you know our years of fighting george tiller makes us highly experienced in how to peacefully and legally shut down these late-term abortionists. we will be in omaha and at carhart's abortion mill on august 28th and 29th to encourage and train pro-lifers, working with us on this project to stop him from becoming the next george tiller. carhart's days in nebraska could be numbered. head of operation rescue signs the letters, yours for the babies, and asks for donations. women's groups across nebraska and kansas and other states are asking for counterprotestors to show up on saturday in nebraska as well as to block the operation rescue folks. in the middle of it all, there stands our next guest. joining us, dr. leroy carhart, friend and colleague of the late dr. geo
crowd because people fear for america. ( applause ) >> reporter: he was facing standing-room-only crowd at every stop. >> we don't really know what's happening. >> reporter: as the ranking republican on the senate's finance committee, grassley is trying to cut through the noise and come up with a bipartisan health care bill that's acceptable to everyone. >> you know, i have been criticized for being at the table, just like i ought to be sitting in nigh office with my feet up on my desk instead of doing what i'm hired to do. >> both sides trust him. he's not a kool-aid drinker for republicans, he's no right winger and he's not a sellout. >> reporter: grassley made that clear today as he assured voters he will not support any legislation that includes a so-called government option. >> the government really isn't a fair competitor. the government tend to be more of a predator. >> reporter: president obama has praised senator grassley for his bipartisanship... >> communicate grassley of iowa. >> reporter: but grassley's message to mr. obama is firm. >> he's going to have to make a public st

. there are so many different philosophies and idea in america. i don't think any, any plan that comes out, will be acceptable to one part of the population or another to a very significant degree. and it's jealousy when somebody has something that you can't have, it bothers you. so i would look to suggest that there be one benefit plan for every american in this system. and then people who want to -- >> what's your question? >> then people who want to have other benefits besides that they can do something like the medicare supplemental insurance plans. so i would look to ask your opinion on that? >> both, both senator, well i shouldn't say, i shouldn't never speak for senator bachus. i feel in this area that maybe i can say that he and i are working toward something that is going to give americans more choice than what you are suggestion would be. now, will we be able to, working and talking, and i don't know there will be a product or not. but we are working towards a direction of having people to have choice. >>> the townhall held by senator chuck grassley. none of this is stopping. the
.vitac.com >>> can't you tell? this make-or-break month for health care reform in america. look at all these town hall meetings going on just today. and some of them happening right now. florida, pennsylvania, senator specter again, montana, and nebraska, also hagerstown, maryland, and that's where senator ben cardin hosts a meeting this hour. we're keeping a close eye on this one. cardin actually got booed and jeered monday at his town hall in towson. and in new jersey, congressman steve rosman hosting that one. and there's a bunch of town halls in iowa. >>> republican senator chuck grassley is hosting four of them today. the second one is wrapping up this hour. the president praised grassley yesterday as a republican that is honestly coming up with a health care reform both parties can live with. he's one of the group of six senators from both parties heavily involved in the negotiations. this event earlier in winterset was pretty civil, but the crowd of 3000-plus wasn't giving the senators any softballs either, take a listen. >> like i said, i'm a dumb, southern iowa red neck, and i see nowher
